Just in time

Lana Tbatou 1962 (Bloomington)

Just in time you came into my life
I was shutting down now that’s twice
I wanted to stop feeling anything inside
I thought I might even want to die
Then you came along just in time
You made me laugh and smile
And forget about bad times
You gave me hope when I thought there was none
But will you like others only run
I’m finding myself attracted to you
And you say you feel it too
We talk to each other now and then
I sure hope this isn’t a pretend
Don’t pretend to be someone your not
I couldn’t stand it, if what we had was to just flop
I find myself so drawn to you
And you say your feeling it too
What is felt as though I’ve known you for a lifetime
What I wonder though is will you ever be mine
Is this just a fantasy
Or is this something that will be
I watch and listen for my phone to go off
It’s like watching the hands move on a clock
Little by little time passed by
I wonder if what he says is the truth or a lie
I so really want to believe
Is this really meant to be
Has he came in my life just in time
To save me, to take me and for him to be mine
I want so much to love again
Will it be with him, it depends
Is this truly meant to be
We will find out, we shall truly see
In time will he come to love me
Or will he only set me free
I’m here I’m waiting please come to me
I’m here I’m waiting please don’t leave
I need you more than you will ever know
I pray our friendship will grow and grow
I want more than to be a friend
But for now I wait I can’t pretend
I’m falling yes falling for you
Do you feel it ,do you want me too?
I want so much to love again
Christopher love me at least as your friend
Who knows what will happen in the end
Maybe we will meet and both love again
